The parties agreed on a complete ceasefire, the withdrawal of troops and the normalization of the situation.

      You are fundamentally wrong, apparently you have
      inaccurate information. The republics of Central Asia were forced to accept the collapse of the union in fact, and no one asked them whether they wanted secession from the USSR or not.

        The collapse of the USSR was forced to accept everything. People were not asked anywhere. And they were obliged by law.
